The Detroit Lions reportedly will play a Monday Night game against the host New York Giants in Week 2 of the National Football League season. He read it off, and it has the 49ers hosting the Giants in Week 10. Speaking of which, if you're headed to any games, get tickets from our partners at Stubhub.

While no one will know for sure what kind of game this year's matchup will be, it does at least for now shape up as a pivotal NFC battle between a Giants team that earned a Wild Card bid in 2016 and the Cardinals, who missed the playoffs in 2016 after reaching the NFC Championship Game the prior season.

The leak says that the Cowboys' Thanksgiving opponent will be the LA Chargers and that Dallas will host the Green Bay Packers in Week 5.

The NFL will officially be releasing the 2017 schedule for all teams tonight at 8:00 EST.

That quest will start on the road at the Cowboys (yet again), end at home against the Redskins and include four scheduled primetime games along the way, including a Thanksgiving Night contest at Washington.

The Cowboys went 13-3 last season with two of those losses against the Giants.

Francesa said the Giants would travel to Arizona to take on the Cardinals in week 16 of the 2017 season, which could mean the franchise would host a game on Christmas Eve.
